At long last....

At long last, here is that recipe that I promised earlier for these:


1 1/3 cups warm water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
2 packages or 2 Tablespoons yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups bread flour

- Combine warm water, oil, honey and yeast in a large bowl.  Cover with kitchen towel and let stand for 15 minutes.
- Add salt and beaten egg to yeast mixture.  Mix vigorously, using a wooden spoon.  Add flour gradually, stirring until well blended.
- Turn dough onto floured surface (such as a counter top).  Use about 1/2 cup bread flour on the table and lightly flour hands.  Knead dough with hands until it is smooth and elastic in feel and appearance, about 5 minutes.
- Roll out dough on the floured surface using a rolling pin or pat it out with your hands, to about 1/2-inch thickness.  Rolls may be cut into any shape desired. (I used a round 2-inch biscuit cutter).
- Place on baking sheet or in a cake pan lightly coated with vegetable spray, sides of rolls touching.
- Let rise in warm place (such as top of stove) for 10 minutes.
- Bake in preheated 425 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until brown.  These needed only 10 minutes.
Yield: about two dozen 2-inch rolls.

This recipe comes from a friend who is known for her participation in groups such as home demonstration clubs.  It was published in the local news paper a number of years ago. 

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. Nellie, Oh yum. Pass the butter please. I could probably eat a ton of those. xoxo,Susie

  2. You always make the best rolls and breads!! Thanks for this recipe, but I'm sure mine wouldn't come out as lovely as yours. I have never really perfected the art of working with yeast, but I surely do enjoy eating those rolls! :-)
